Participants raised their concerns/ queries on the following issues:

  1. filing of refund on the basis of new formula, the department is issuing show-cause notices on the basis that amendment is applicable prospectively and not retrospectively;
  2. raw material imported on Advance Authorisation Licence (AAL) was used with other raw material for manufacture of goods which was exported after paying IGST. Exporter claimed the refund however got suggestion that he can’t export the goods produced from such raw material imported under AAL and should made an application to return the refund;
  3. for availment of ITC which is lying in electronic credit ledger, do the authority see it as a total ITC or kity-wise: IGST, CGST, SGST;
  4. export freight exemption expired on 30th September 2022 should have been continued as ITC on services is not fully refunded
  5. exemption on import of cotton should be extended beyond 31st October 2022
  6. a tax-payer should not be held responsible for the irregularities of the taxes found in the entire supply chain, it is a matter of great concern for the entire industry
  7. there should be a facility through which we should be able to amend our GSTR1 & GSTR3B
  8. there should be a provision for amending E-Way Bill and E-Invoicing
  9. clarity on Ocean freight

We would like to conduct more such GST webinars on regular intervals to help the industry players understand recent amendments as also understand the procedural constraints being faced by members.

We look forward to your feedback and suggestions for making the webinars more useful and informative for the industry.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

Chandrima Chatterjee
